According to the service literature I read, the 2003 Montero Sport with the 3.0 or 3.5 L engine does not have O2 sensors listed even in the maintenance schedule. The 2.4 L engine has it on the exhaust manifold though.

However, the following lists the par, though for before or after the catalytic converter:

---
I think that $250 to $300 is reasonable if the Oxygen sensors are stuck in there with rust and the threads are preserved by the technician. Oxygen Sensor replacement can be tricky.

Good luck on this repair.

2003 honda civic o2 how to replace And how do i fin out which once is it


Hi Jesus, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

If you have a 4 cylinder engine then you will only have two 02 sensors 1/1 is upstream and 1/2 is downstream. Upstream is the one closet to the engine and downstream is the one farther away from the engine.

If you have a six OR eight cylinder engine you will have four 02 Sensors. 1/1 means Bank One Sensor One. 1/1 and Bank one means right bank and right bank means the side with the number 1 spark plug. SO, 1/1 means, "Right Bank" Upstream 02 sensor. 1/2 means, "Right Bank" Downstream 02 sensor.

2/1 means, "Left Bank" Upstream 02 sensor and 2/2 means, "Left Bank" Downstream 02 sensor. Hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair-website at: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

It is the O2 Sensor. Are you sure you replaced the correct one or have you replaced all of them. My vehicle has four. Based on what I have found it appears your car has four also. Have you replace those or just the one you can see. You will have one each at the Catalytic converters, whioch are called the down stream sensors. You will also have two upstream sensors on the exhaust pipes near the exhaust manifolds.

Code po154 what does it mean and what do i do to fix


Hi,
The reason for code po154 is that there is no activity detected on the Bank 2 Sensor 1 . But there is also a bulletin that reprograms the computer for a false readout. Basically you need to monitor the O2 sensor action. If it looks in good condition then the reprogram needs to be done. If not, you need to replace the O2 sensor.


Thank you !!

Where are the oxygen sensors located on my 93 gs 300


Should you have two O2 Sensors, one will be located "upstream" of the catalytic converter...screwed into the exhaust with anywhere from two to four wires going to it, and also takes a 7/8" O2 Sensor wrench to remove and install and should you have a second one, it is placed "After" the catalytic converter and at times, right along beside it with the same amount of wires as the upstream one.

Good Luck,

Meaning of code 151 0n 4m41 engine


P0151 O2 Sensor Circuit Low Voltage (Bank 2 Sensor 1)
this could be a fluke code I would earse it and see if it comes back before putting the sensor in there not cheap. Bank 2 means witch side of the engine bank 1 is the side that #1 cylinder is on bank 2 is the other side sensor 1 means upstream above the catalytic converter on the engine side sensor 2 is below the catalytic converter

Where is the oxygen sensor located?


WHICH ENGINE YOU GOT?... V6 OR 4 CYLINDER?
On the V6 there are four (4) oxygen sensors (O2 Snsr), and on the 4 cylinder there are two (2) O2 Snsrs. The Upstream O2 sensors are in the exhaust manifolds at the top, and the downstream O2 sensors are at the bottom of it or in the exhaust pipe.
